The Truck project Traveling with the Truck The camperunit Sochi 2014


In 1996 the next Jeep came in sight. Desperado was running for 4 years now and a new project should be started. Herman was very charmed of a late seventies Jeep truck. After a few months of spelling the adds in the newspapers a suitable truck was found. A 1976 J20 for little money, but the body in terrible state.  In 2000 a second truck was bought as a parts donor. This one wasn't as bad as it looked, so it is still running and because of that the rebuild project proceeds very slow.

On the pictures it doesn't look that bad, but when you look closely you can see that there is hardly anything left of the body.

Herman started copying body parts in stainless steel a few years ago, but this is still all there is .


The final goal is a Jeep camper, like the ones that are sold in the sixties:
